for most of the past decade were syria and iran. the leadership was damascus. that got totally destroyed because hamas is part of the broader muslim brotherhood network in the middle east as morsi is one of the leaders of the egyptian muslim brotherhood so hamas the palestinian brotherhood and the muslim brotherhood in syria is the single biggest group in the political if not military opposition to assets so the relationship between hamas and syria is destroyed. the relationship between hamas and iran barely exists. iran does have ties to other smaller militant groups in gaza. >> jennifer: hussein are you saying -- >> does maintain some relations with hamas but they're not close. you're absolutely right though to point out that what all of this is doing to the p.a., the palestinian authority and the plo, western friendly and interested in peace agreement with israel, not interested in a fight to the death or armed struggle. they essentially have gotten into a very huge pickle over the past year because a year ago
and degradation of life in syria. you have spoken about this passionately. it's getting worse and worse. 400,000 refugees. it's going across the borders of turkey jordan, israel. what's happening now. >> there was an agreement reached by the syrian opposition to form this new national council led by a former islamist imam from syria. whether he can hold this together remains to be seen. this is a legitment government. he needs arms. he needs no fly zones. unless he gets these. they have the means to pummel the people of syria. >> eliot: is now to step in to provide arms. >> i take the pronoun we and apply it to the turks on the one hand and the jordannens on the other. let them have the support that they need, whether from the united states or elsewhere, for them to do what is necessary to create those no fly zones. for the state department to stop acting from mrs. clinton or the u.s. government to stop acting and kicking and screaming and supporting the french. if the french want to do this as the former colonial power the state department should stop them from doing so. >> eliot: why are w
with it is going to take up an awful lot of the president's time. from the continuing civil war in syria to iran's nuclear threat, crises continue to erupt. joining me now in his second term marc ginsberg, former u.s. ambassador to morocco who served for middle east policy to jimmy carter. ambassador, as always, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> eliot: the multiple headaches, which one is the migraine that will grab the president? >> the real migraine is iran. no doubt eliot as the president goes back to the white house and he looks at that situation room and he says hey i just won re-election and these problems haven't gone away. the question really is the president going to do what his administration officials have been hinting to the press? and try to strike a grand bargain with iran before the times run out on their nuclear program. >> eliot: first, what is the time at which time does run out if we know and two, what would that bargain be? >> first of all we better damn well know when that time -- is or else w
it makes the argument it wants to be made gee aren't we victims when they're not. syria which you have been writing about with increasing accuracy, saying we must do something. have we forgotten about syria as the battle between israel and hamas has grown? >> you hit the nail on the head, eliot. in the final analysis, that's exactly what iran wants. iran hopes to benefit from this crisis and that's exactly what it wants. attention taken off of syria. and having the arab world come to the rescue of its proxy puppet hamas. >> eliot: ambassador marc ginsburg, thanks for coming on the show, sharing your insights even if it is a mess. >> sure. >> eliot: the election means a new day and a new deal on the fiscal cliff. robert reich joins us coming up ahead. the first 1,000 days of human life can cause irreparable harm to our brains and our bodies. that's why "current" has partnered with "1,000 days" to help spread the word & combat a problem that ultimately effects all of us. to see how you can help go to current dot com. brought to you
from syria and iran. now it has turkey, qatar it's less dependent on iran than it ever has been. >> eliot: unfortunately i think we'll have this conversation over and over and over again. james traub and joe many thanks tonight. we'll go up the big top for the circus that is the modern gop with sam seder coming up on "viewpoint." narrator>>> current tv is "feeding the need". natalie zisko>>>el granada is a special place to learn because we have a dedicated community and a dedicated staff. and when kids come on campus everyday, they're enthusiasm for learning shines. we receive federal funding because a majority of our students are socially disadvantaged. making sure our students receive healthy nutritious lunches and breakfasts is critical to their learning. i would like to see students take more ownership of what they eat everyday and learn about their bodies and how their food nourishes them. sandra jonaidi>>> i hope that we get them early enough that they've learn some good eating habits and they go forward and become very productive humans and grow up to make us all proud of
factors in the middle east is what is going on in syria. the syrian -- there are a few -- not missiles but some explosions in the golan along the syrian/israeli border. is that also one of the approximate causes that's destabilizing not only what's going on in gaza but what may happen with hezbollah? >> i don't think so. i think that civil war has potential to spread -- it has potential to spread to turkey, to iraq, to jordan not really to israel. i think that israel lobbed a few shells to warn them to stay away from the border. but no faction sees itself advantaged -- the other factions by getting israel involved. >> eliot: one of the more worrisome developments in the past week, in my mind has been that jordan which has been unfortunately besieged by several hundred thousand refugees from syria is also seeing some domestic violence with riots because of gas prices and jordan had been to a certain extent, the island of stability within the arab world. how do you assess that dynamic? >> that's highly dangerous
from the crisis in syria, to crisis in israel with drone strikes. he has been the front man on all of these issues. >> jennifer: so let's talk first about the -- the whys and the times of this. this is a friday afternoon, some in the far-right press are suspicious that the timing suggests that there was some fear about him testifying relating to benghazi, there is an investigation and hearing scheduled for next week. do you think this has to do with that? >> no. he has handled a lot more difficult issues than benghazi. he would have been able to handle that. i think it's a separate issue that somebody needed to take responsibility for the benghazi thing early, someone from the state department, but i don't believe they would have him come out like this with an affair. he could have said i'm going to resign because of benghazi. certainly on a friday night you always drop this news in washington on a friday night, bad news like this. >> jennifer: affairs happen all the time. why would he have to resign because of an affair. >> most likely because there is going t
's member were involved in on attack on the american embassy in benghazi and sending fighters into syria, and in yemen those that were responsible for the so-called underpanteds bomber. so these different franchises while maybe not having think ability to carry out mass attacks like the 9/11 attack still can cause great violence. >> jennifer: really appreciate you coming in. thank you so much eric schmidt. >> thank you. >> jennifer: appreciate it. up next the saying it all depends on your point of view is especially relevant when discussing drones. there is a human dynamic that goes well beyond the strategy and statistics and we'll tell you about that right after the break. (vo)answer: pour disaronno into a flute glass and top with prosecco. brought to you by disaronno. be originale. unwrap your paradise. soft, sweet coconut covered in rich, creamy chocolate. almond joy and mounds. unwrap paradise. >> most of the media coverage and the u.s. government mind in the united states is that drone strikes are very precise, and they target with surgical precision particularl
a database of about 500 names of al-qaeda fighters who had come to iraq through syria. so not only were they able to take apart that organization by identifying all those folks and finding them, it also illustrated that the the al-qaeda movement in iraq was primarily a foreign movement, not an indigenous. that's one of the things that helped to turn the sunnies getsal al-qaeda. >> eliot: and you highlighted that they would use it and form and see linkages that might not have been possible to see many years back using new software and computer techniques that began to create--sort of out of a science fiction movie where you say these are the links these are the bank it's a, and that's how you figure out who is who and where to go. >> well, more than that, eliot general mcchrystal, when he got all of this information took the unusual step of declassifying it and posting it at the west point combat in terrorism website so anyone in the world could research this data for whatever they wanted. he just basically used the capability of the superintendent to draw on the talents of analysts from

which had been representing the fighters in syria have been accused of being out of touch the people really weren't in syria. so the u.s. in particular has been pushing to enlarge the group. we now have done that. so the existing syrian national council will have, perhaps 30% of the seats on this larger group which will function like a parliament. bringing in more representation from the groups that are in there. this will now become the unified conduit for getting aid including arms to the opposition fighter. >> bill: so this means we have a legitimate resistance force right? legitimate opposition which could become the legitimate new government. >> legitimate because it is more representative. because it has larger groups. and it has healed some of the riffs that have existed between some of the christian muslim organizations. >> bill: now speaking of riffs, netanyahu in israel bet on the wrong horse. he all but endorsed mitt romney for president. even beforehand, he was pretty snippy as far as far a
? >> syria. >> are you following the u.s. elections? >> yes. >> who are you pulling for? >> who? >> in the election, you know, obama. >> oh, okay then, i don't know. i prefer obama. >> what part of nevada are you from. >> i'm from alberta canada. >> have you been watching much television. >> i try not to keep up the noise with what is going on out there. alberta is a huge friend of the u.s. they call alberta the 51st state. and we have the pipeline. >> now we run into somebody and now we have to talk about an actual issue. thanks. you would like to see the pipelines open because it would be good for alberta. >> absolutely. >> if you were american would you be supporting mitt romney? >> i would be. >> the good news is he can't vote. >> vegas? >> yes, sir. >> hey. >> you're the first person i've found from las vegas. are the political ads annoying here? are you tired of them. >> you mean all the prostitute ads where they give you little cards? that's the only ads i'm used to here. >> no, the ads for the candidates obama and-- >> yeah, yeah, i ignore that now. >> the election is co
they carry on? in the middle of a war whether it's syria afghanistan whatever it might be, in mexico, how do people just go about their business? >> well, i think people don't have a choice. when conflicts erupt in a places that than been peaceful, there is a period of shock. but people understand, hey, i have to go to my job or i have to get water, firewood whatever it is. it is circumstantial. people are forced into living their lives as they need to. >> cenk: when you go back to mexico, and i don't know if you have a sense of time and perspective there, but it certainly appears that it got much worse. did you see that? and why do you think it got so much worse? why do you think people are thrown in vats of acid, etc.? >> you know, over the last four or five years the violence has increased dramatically. i think a lot of that had to do with the militarization of the country. you know basically have federal police and military forces deployed to cities all over the country, and it heated up the area. now you have another group of armed actors contributing to the violence. certainly the poli
